Vertical In-Line Pumps Series 4360
Armstrongs economical, lower-range vertical inline pump for HVAC, domestic water systems, and industrial applications requiring a compact pump. Positive sealing assured by proven inside-type mechanical seal. Radially split volute permits removal of the motor and pump rotating assembly without removing the pump volute from the line. Fewer maintenance and servicing problems due to bearing-free pump design. Available in bronze fitted, all bronze, or all iron construction, in a range of sizes.
Vertical In-Line Pumps Series 4380
Armstrongs close-coupled vertical in-line pump features economical inside-type, single-spring mechanical seal, serviced by removing the rotating assembly while the pump casing remains in the line. Dynamically balanced impeller assures smooth, vibration-free operation. Radially split volute with equal suction and discharge flange sizes. Separate tapped openings for gauge, flush and drain connections. Available in bronze fitted, all bronze, all iron, and ductile iron construction.
Close Coupled Vertical In-Line Pumps

Refer to the schedule for pump flows and heads and motor speed, efficiency, enclosure and power requirements. The pumps shall be Armstrong Series 4360 or Series 4380 motor mounted Vertical In-Line.
Pump casing shall be cast iron, suitable for 175 psig working pressure at 140°F. The casing shall be hydrostatically tested to 150% maximum working pressure. The casing shall be radially split to allow removal of the rotating element without disturbing the pipe connections. The casing shall be provided with NPT threaded companion flanges, for the appropriate pump size, with gaskets and hardware.
Pump impeller shall be fully enclosed type. The impeller shall be keyed and secured to the pump shaft by stainless steel fittings.
The pump shaft shall be a stainless steel stub shaft for frame 56 motors. The steel motor shaft shall be enclosed by a bronze shaft sleeve, on other motor frame sizes.
Mechanical Seal shall be single spring inside type with Carbon and Ni-Resist faces, EPDM elastomer, stainless steel spring and hardware. (Carbon and Ceramic faces, with Buna elastomer and brass hardware, on frame 56 motor units) Provide factory installed seal vent line, piped from the seal area to the pump suction connection.
Pump casing shall be cast iron, suitable for 175 psig working pressure at 140°F. (Ductile Iron for pressures to 250 psig) The casing shall be hydrostatically tested to 150% maximum working pressure. The casing shall be radially split to allow removal of the rotating element without disturbing the pipe connections. The casing suction and discharge connections shall be the same size and shall be provided with drilled and tapped seal vent and pressure gauge connections.
Pump impeller shall be bronze, fully enclosed type. Impeller shall be dynamically balanced. A bronze shaft sleeve, extending the full length of the mechanical seal area, shall be provided.
